Investigation of the regenerative process through live imaging and molecular studies revealed how this happens: The cardiomyocytes "dedifferentiate" -- that is, they revert to an earlier form, something between an embryonic and an adult cell, which can then divide and differentiate into new heart cells.
These cells were > 90% pure (see Supplemental Material, Figure S3B) and did not overexpress AHR relative to the parental ES cells (see Supplemental Material, Figure S3C) but expressed mesodermal markers characteristic of cardiomyocyte cells (see Supplemental Material, Figure S3D).
Khademhosseini explained that to grow tissue on the scaffolds, the researchers put newborn rat cardiomyocytes on the gel.

The expression levels and activity increases of caspase-3 by RT-PCR and Western blotting (Figure 2) raise the possibility of cardiomyocyte apoptosis.
and investigated the role of cardiomyocytes, corin and cardiac natriuretic peptide signaling in heart failure and the potential of treatment with PL-3994.
The team also found similar cardiomyocyte potential in Scl-deficient embryos in the endocardium that lines the heart chambers.
AL markedly inhibited cardiomyocyte apoptosis induced by diabetic cardiac injury.
Combined with our findings showing that antimiR-15 therapy may also stimulate cardiomyocyte regeneration, these results suggest that inhibition of the miR-15 family represents a compelling dual mechanism approach to disease treatment in an area of significant unmet medical need.
In vitro study results indicate vepoloxamer may limit or prevent cardiomyocyte dysfunction and death due to calcium overload in heart failure
